Harvest Café came to life in October, 2002, when co-owners Karen Freker and Pippa Jollie left corporate life and embarked on a new adventure dedicated to entrepreneurship, community, and the arts.
Today, Harvest Café has evolved into a meeting place for the Hudson community, dedicated to fresh food prepared simply, locally roasted coffees and fine imported teas. All of these are provided in a comfortable easy environment that welcomes everyone.
Hudson is rich in history and art of all kinds, and the customers and staff at Harvest Café provide a focal point for the local arts scene. We support local artists in a variety of ways - by providing space on our walls for visual artists, by coordinating a schedule of music performers, and by hosting poetry and literature reading for local clubs and schools.
Our Community is better understanding the benefits to Shopping local. That old jingle... "Keep more money around...shop in your own home town." This is really the key to keeping some of the variety and diversity of restaurants, merchants and services available to serve our community. We the small independent business rely just as heavily on our local and regional community members for support, feedback and the fabric and network that keeps us all moving forward. Harvest Cafe is proud of the Community Events and Organizations that we are regularly involved in. We are members of the Assabet Chamber of Commerce, the Hudson Business Association, the Wachusett Chamber of Commerce and the Hudson/Marlboro Arts Alliance. We have provided links to share these organizations with you.
